I planted a lot of fruit trees, grape vines and berry bushes for their health benefits.
Fruit does contain calories.
I count my calories, so I always add in those calories.
Always keep fruit in your daily menu. Fruit is not just carbs and sugar.
You can find out the health remedies of your favorite fruits by searching in the internet.
I make juice and freeze it.
I drink 10 ounces every day. About 150 calories.
Pears contain an acid that staves off Dementia and Altzheimers. My blackberries and purple grapes have anthocyanins that keep strokes away. They thin the blood a little.
Niagara grape juice gives me a lot of energy.
My elderberry extract is loaded with anti-virals that keeps colds and flu at bay.
Blackberries and bilberries keep my night vision sharp.
I eat one banana every day for the potassium so I don't get muscle spasms or a charlie horse.
The banana has 100 calories.
So I take in 250 calories in fruit every day.
The health aspects of fruit are too great to remove them from my diet.
I grow strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, mulberries, elderberries, cranberries, pears, peaches, apples, apricots, currants, and grapes.
Berries are essential to the health of your heart and blood vessels.
Fruit helps to keep your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol within normal range.
With fruit selling for more than $1 per pound I am better off growing my own.
Just one tree produces over 100 pounds of fruit.
A grape vine produces 100 pounds. I give my extra fruit away to the church members.
Gardening is a lot of exercize, which helps keep me healthy too.
Making juice is a lot of work and even more exercize.
I lost over 25 pounds last year...and this year I hope to lose 50!
Best of luck on your dieting!
